About Chadwick

Chad is a member of Beasley Allen Law Firm’s Mass Torts Section and is currently responsible for a number of cases, including Transvaginal Mesh, Fosamax and Zithromax litigation. He assists in investigating new drugs and medical devices that potentially present a serious danger to consumers.

Notable Cases

Presently, Chad is one of 11 lawyers from around the country selected to oversee the consolidated litigation as part of the Plaintiffs Steering Committee (PSC) for In re: Fosamax Products Liability Litigation (No. II), MDL 2243. This litigation, which encompasses hundreds of cases against Merck Sharp & Dohme, Corp., involves femur fracture injuries and is consolidated under U.S. District Judge Garrett E. Brown Jr., in the District of New Jersey.

Chad is also on the Plaintiff’s Discovery Committee for In re: Fosamax Products Liability Litigation, MDL-1789. It is venued in the Southern District of New York Federal Court before the Honorable John F. Keenan, and involves cases of osteonecrosis of the jaw. Chad assists with serving on the Fosamax Science and Administrative Committees for this litigation.

In addition, he also is working on cases involving transvaginal mesh and bladder slings. Transvaginal mesh is used to repair conditions such as pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). This mesh is used to shore up pelvic organs that have become displaced due to age, childbirth, hysterectomy or obesity. According to the FDA, reported complications from transvaginal placement of this mesh include erosion of the mesh into the vaginal tissue, organ perforation, pain, infection, painful intercourse and urinary and fecal incontinence. Often women require surgery to remove the mesh. In some cases, this can require multiple surgical procedures without successful removing all of the mesh. Currently, Chad is representing thousands of clients involving mesh manufactured by several defendants including American Medical Systems, Bard, Boston Scientific, Caldera and Johnson & Johnson.

They take the best care of their clients in every way possible. They keep us informed and aware of things involved in their clients cases. Their counsel is stellar in the industry. I would highly recommend them to others in their time of need and I have done so.
